"Ka...me...ha...me...ha!!!!" Piccolo freaks out that it's the real thing, and just barely jumps outta the way of the Kamehameha. However, while mid-air, the monster jumps up behind Piccolo and grabs him, trapping his arms and legs. He drives his tail towards Piccolo's chest, but Piccolo turns away just enough for the tail to pierce his left arm. The monster had tried to kill him, and gets pissed he got his arm. But he doesn't mind taking his powerful bio extract instead, and starts sucking the life out of Piccolo's arm. Piccolo manages to headbutt him and escape, although his arm has shriveled up into nothing. The monster says without the use of one arm, the tides have turned. Piccolo, clutching his arm, says he's losing balance too, and regretfully says the monster wins. The monster is glad, absorbing bio extract of Piccolo's level will bring him ever closer to his perfect form.

Piccolo has a request before he gets absorbed, though: why does he have the ki of Gokuu and Freeza and everyone, and why can he use Kamehameha. The monster figures he'll die anyway, so what the hell. "My name is 'Cell', I'm a Jinzouningen. I was invented by Doctor Gero's computer. Long ago, he began gathering the cells of fighting experts, and combined those cells. His Jinzouningen research began, but since it was taking too much time, he abandoned it mid-way. However, his computer continued the work without rest. Son Gokuu, Piccolo, as well as Vegeta's cells were harvested at the battle when Vegeta and Nappa came to Earth." Piccolo figures with Gokuu at that time, it's no wonder the Kamehameha didn't seem so great.

"Furthermore, we lucked out and took cells from Freeza and his father when they came to Earth. It would've been good to take cells from the kid called Trunks as well, but there was already enough Saiyan cells gathered." Piccolo wants to know how they gathered cells, they didn't see anyone suspicious around. "You should've heard from Doctor Gero that your actions have been monitored by spy robots. Little robots like bees. Nobody would notice. While they were at it, they took some of your cells. Take a good luck. [pointing to a tiny bug] Even now, it's sending this data to the computer. I think it wants your cells." Piccolo spots the spy robot, then destroys it. "Destroying it now is too late. The necessary cells have already been gathered, and the research has begun. Although I won't be complete until twenty-four years in the future."

Piccolo tells him that's impossible, Doctor Gero's laboratory was destroyed. "The computer is in a research room below ground." Piccolo asks why it's taken him three years since he got here to come out of his egg. "Once I return to my egg, it takes three years underground for me to mature again. It was just that I needed the time. Plus, I could gradually absorb people." Piccolo's last question is why did he come from the future. "For me to reach my perfect form, the bio extract of humans alone is insufficient. There are two essential and special life forms I need to combine with. The computer told me that those two special life forms were...the Jinzouningen created by Doctor Gero, Seventeen and Eighteen! Though, when I awoke in my future, I don't know how, but that Trunks person had defeated Seventeen and Eighteen. They were gone."

"However, I lucked out. Trunks had a time machine. I killed Trunks and came to this time to search for Seventeen and Eighteen. That's how it is." Piccolo asks why come to this time. "Well...Trunks's time machine was set for this time. I just pressed the switch." Piccolo thinks to himself that maybe Trunks wanted to come back and inform them how he defeated the Jinzouningen. "The computer also said this! If I reach my perfect form, I could obtain fearsome power beyond imagination!!!" Piccolo asks what he needs that kind of power for. "What for? The computer was programmed to just create a strong person, as far as I can figure. Or perhaps it's the blood of the Saiyans, Freeza, and Piccolo flowing within me." Piccolo says okay, the mystery has been fully unraveled, as he rips off his shriveled arm. Then he regenerates a new one right away. Cell is shocked, and realizes that's why he made him talk. Piccolo says he won't let him reach his perfect form. And Piccolo says he was foolish for having his blood flowing within him, yet not realizing the regeneration ability.
